Mission Statement

Jump-Start Performance Co. is dedicated to the discovery and support of new ideas in the arts and arts education. By encouraging visionary thought and non-traditional approaches, Jump-Start is committed to the creation of art that is a lasting voice of diverse cultures and communities.

Description

Organizational History and Description Jump-Start Performance Co. was founded in 1985 and has a history of continuous artistic and financial growth. The company has increasingly gained national recognition while remaining firmly rooted in San Antonio. Since its formation, Jump-Start has created, presented or produced over 500 original performance works and reached an audience of over 300,000 people. Jump-Start's audience is extremely diverse, and largely composed of ethnic minorities and individuals of modest economic means, those underserved by mainstream arts organizations. Jump-Start is one of only a handful of theatres nationwide that focuses exclusively on the creation and presentation of new works. This makes it a unique resource for San Antonio, the state of Texas and the nation. Jump-Start is located in the Blue Star Arts Complex, just south of downtown San Antonio, Texas, in a facility that includes a 100-seat performance space, gallery/lobby, and company offices. As part of the company's commitment to act as a community resource, Jump-Start makes it space available to numerous other arts and community groups. Because Jump-Start provides a performance home for ethnically diverse artists and audiences, it plays a unique role as a forum for cross-cultural dialog and exchange.
